Two Relevant Coursera Courses Starting Today

  • Web Intelligence and Big Data – Artificial Intelligence, NoSQL, map-reduce!! Oh My! I think this course will have some really good information.
  • Gamification – From the first glance, this course may not directly relate to data science. However, gamification can lead to better user engagement which can lead to tons more data for prediction. I am interested in this course for exploring the connection between gamification and data science.

Happy Studying!
